QOTD -- Brexit

Policymakers in London started September more dedicated than ever on implementing a no-deal Brexit. Three separate actions indicated the depth of their resolve:

  1. Parliament conducted a second reading for the Fisheries Bill (fisheries remains a high-profile area blocking agreement with the EU);

  2. The Johnson Government launched a consultation on restructuring its approach to regulatory cooperation internationally, in response to an set of OECD recommendations; and

  3. The Bank of England's Prudential Regulation Authority issued this reminder to bank chief executive officers about the shift in regulatory requirements taking effect at the end of 2020:

Even if a last-minute deal occurs with the European Union, current policy trajectories point towards a narrow deal focused on goods without any commitments concerning regulatory policy.
